schema:description""The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are arguably the most ambitious developmental undertaking ever embraced by the international community. They involve the achievement of targets, in most cases by 2015, for the reduction of extreme income poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing child mortality, improving maternal health, combating HIV/AIDS and other major diseases, ensuring environmental sustainability and developing a global partnership for development. This book provides cutting edge analytical insights into if and how the stated aims are likely to be achieved. The volume presents empirical analyses of key determinants of the MDG target variables, which recognise that most of the MDG targets are endogenously related. These inter-dependencies are crucial not only in analysing the MDGs but also devising strategies aimed at their achievement." -- Book cover."@en
